Simple or complicated agent-based models? A complicated issue

Zhanli Sun, Iris Lorscheid, James D. Millington, Steffen Lauf, Nicholas R. Magliocca, Jürgen Groeneveld, Stefano Balbi, Henning Nolzen, Birgit Müller, Jule Schulze, Carsten M. Buchmann
2016 Environmental Modelling & Software  
The success of empirical ABMs proves that ABMs are not only for "proof-of-concept", but can also be useful in addressing real-world problems.  ...  ABMs allow modellers to explicitly incorporate feedbacks between human and environmental systems and to investigate emergent patterns at the macro level in time and space due to interactions at lower levels  ...  But modellers need systemic approaches when facing substantial numbers of options and decisions as in the case of agent-based land use models.  ...
